Charity Bottle Raffle at Basepoint Gosport
Licencees and staff generously donated bottles and purchased raffle tickets for Gosport Basepoint`s local charity. An amazing £144.50 was raided for the Oakley Waterman Caravan Foundation
The Oakely Waterman Caravan foundation was founded by Dave and Lorraine Waterman from Gosport shortly before Oakley ,their six year old son died of a rare form of cancer called Rhabdomysarcoma in 2005.
It was while enjoying precious time together,staying in a caravan in Pagham near Chichester that Oakley announced his wish.He wished that they could purchase a caravan at Church Farm ,which he loved so much ,so it could also be used by other children who are suffering from similar life-threatening illnesses .
A caravan was purchased in 2005 and a second in 2007 .The upkeep of the two holiday homes the foundation owns costs approximately £35,000.00per year
